Strong colors, violet "(CAN)CELLE(D)" handstamp and another light handstamp

VERY FINE. A RARE EXAMPLE OF THE 1920 ONE-SHILLING STATUE OF QUEEN VICTORIA WITH FRAME INVERTED. AN IMPORTANT JAMAICAN RARITY AND ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS INVERTED CENTERS OF THE WORLD.

In March 1922, a small number (reported to be ten) of the One Shilling stamps with the frame inverted were found at the Manchioneal post office, a small village on the north east coast. It is certain that a full sheet of 60 was printed, but that only 30 were sent to Manchioneal. Most of these 30 were used on telegrams or on thrift savings cards. However, examples removed from telegrams cannot be distinguished from postally used, as the canceling device was the same. The other half of the sheet was probably sold over the counter in Kingston, as used copies with Kingston cancels exist. It is believed no more than twenty five (unused or used) are known.

With 2021 B.P.A. certificate as "not postally used". Scott $25,000.00 as postally used, $2,500.00 as revenue cancel (which seems awfully low versus the rarity and desirability of this error). SG £25,000 as postally used.
